Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for a contouring beginner I bought two of these foundation sticks for the explicit purpose of cream contouring. I wanted something that wouldn't cause me sensitive skin to react but also wouldn't cost me a fortune and I found it! These are very creamy and blend quite well. I use a blender sponge to apply them and it looks so natural; I'm very pleased! Since I didn't get these to use as a foundation I can't say how it would work as one. Though judging by how it wears I'd say it'd work just fine if you like a thicker, creamier foundation. (I think I actually might buy a stick in my shade next time I have some extra spending money just to try)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful I got this stick just for the simple fact of contouring. I am PALE so I thought getting 3 shades darker would do, but it wasn't dark enough so I may end up purchasing a different shade in the future. It glides on great and it's very moisturizing so if you have oily skin this may be a nightmare for you. I do get annoyed that the stick doesn't stay up and I have to hold it but that's just petty. It's a great base for when I use my nyx matte bronzer on top of it and seems to last. Bottom line I love this for contouring, I just need to get a darker shade, but I couldn't imagine using this for an all over application and not setting it with a bronzer/powder. Overall pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful and versatile This is honestly the best makeup I've tried since Bare Minerals. When I first put it on it felt a bit oily and thick, I was worried it would be hard to blend. but not at all! Blends easily and smoothly, leaves no tell tale transition lines. It has none of the tell tale makeup texture of other the cream, powder, liquid, and mousse foundations that I've tried. Looks like you have on no makeup but provides medium coverage. It's buildable though so if I need a bit more coverage I can just layer more where I need it. One of the easiest build able makeups I've ever used. It does have a pretty "dewy" look though. If you like to have a super matte face this is not for you. But if you like the natural dewy look, or you have dry skin, this is really nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this foundation! I bought the Mineral Stick Foundation about a month ago and it has quickly become my very favorite foundation, ever. I have always had a hard time finding a foundation that matched my skin, was easy to put on, and didn't make my skin too oily or clog my pores. I think the Mineral Stick Foundation is my perfect product. It applies quickly, blends well, and lasts all day. Also I love the packaging. I would recommend this to anyone, especially if your skin is combination dry/oily like mine. It seemed to balance that out nicely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for contouring! Bought this on the advice of a MUA I follow on IG who suggested I try the caramel color for contouring. I highlight with my NYX concealer and contour with the foundation blend with my beauty blender and it comes out amazing! I love the color and consistency but I find if u put the stick right on ur face it comes out to heavy so I use a brush to pick up the makeup and apply it. I love this product and I will most likely continue buying it for contouring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NYX Mineral stick foundation - Excellent Try this foundation! Impressive. I was using the HD Foundation which I liked very much, but I found that it was settling into my pores. I also stopped using the HD primer as that created a white cast on my skin. BUT! As a true fan of NYX makeup I wanted to try the Mineral Stick Foundation. I have never used a stick foundation before, but this is wonderful! So easy to apply, coverage is great, and no settling into pores. I use the Medium Biege for now and will switch to Golden Beige for summer. I use the NYX powder foundation in Beige to set the makeup and I have the NYX Matte Finish Spray which I use now & then if it's warm outside. I also use Revlon's CC cream as a base under the foundation - haven't tried the NYX BB cream yet. Thank you NYX for creating affordable and truly great products. I've used all the department store bands over the years but grew tired of the expense. Tried your products and will never go back! Very impressed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!!! I just got this a few days ago but I'm already pleased and am planning on stocking up!! I'm hypersensitive to silicones so this was heaven sent!!! I have really bad acne scars and acne spots and this covers them really well. The finish is amazing, not too matte but also not too dewy, satiny imo. As the other reviewer said, this would be AMAZING for countouring especially at the price of ten bucks! I will most definitely be stocking up on these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great job NYX I recently received my nyx mineral stick foundation in the mail ! And I finally got to try it out . I loved it! I bought caramel to contour and it's nice, creamy, and easy to work with. It's not cakey at all. I'm definitely going to buy another one. The only problem is that there should be more product in the tube.

Is this foundation non-comedogenic? I have acne (I'm on minocycline, epiduo, and aczone) and I'm worried about this product containing oil.
